We were already excited because TGIF and all that, but waking up to news that Lupita Nyong'o was named the new face of Lancome? This is perhaps the best Friday on the books. Both Lupita and Lancome confirmed the news, with the brand sharing the first gorgeous photo of, we're sure, many, and the actress making the announcement in a video on Instagram. How did anyone make major announcements before technology? Carrier pigeon? Town crier? If you were busy when he cried, you just didn't know who the new face of Lancome was? No thanks. ILY, internet.

The photo features Lupita looking stunning—what else is new—in light, natural makeup. To say she looks radiant would be the understatement of the century. Given her love for color, though, both in clothing and makeup, we're hopeful that the campaign will include her in bright, colorful looks. There is already ample proof of how well she pulls it off.

Today is a magical day, one that only comes once or twice a year: a Thursday during spring break. Hello, perfect opportunity to #TBT pics from spring breaks past. As you're probably aware, MTV has been hosting spring break events for years, including performances. What you may not know, though, is that during the late '90s and early aughts, there was a show that married our two fave things—fashion and music. Spring-break editions of Fashionably Loud featured models showing off vacay fashions to live performances from the likes of Destiny's Child, Jay Z, Missy Elliott, and more. We figured we'd get in the throwback Thursday game with six of our favorite looks from Fashionably Loud, most of which were totally inappropriate for the beach. Peep 'em all below!

It seems that Fashionably Loud was full of performers wearing things one wouldn't normally pack for a beach vacation. I could be wrong, but I don't think a furry Kangol hat is the first thing anyone would put in their bag for Miami. I'm not Missy Elliott, though, so what do I know?

Lauren Conrad

We got got.

It seems like just yesterday we were lauding Lauren Conrad's decision to dye her typically blonde 'do pastel purple—APRIL FOOLS, it was yesterday (which, coincidentally, was April Fools' day). Turns out LC totally punk'd us and Photoshopped her lavender hair. Well, joke's on you, Lauren, because we are now convinced you should do it for real. More convinced than ever. We know Kristen Ess has the ability, we saw the color she "mixed"—quite the elaborate prank involving your hair colorist, TBH—so why not let her plop that mixture on your head? It looks sooo good.

Lauren isn't the first reality show star to fool the public into thinking she had gone purple—Nicole Richie posted a purple-haired pic to her Instagram, only to reveal she was joking. But then...she did it IRL. Will Lauren follow in her footsteps? We hope so.

Nick Cannon, Denins Rodman

Leopard-print hair is not an easy look to incorporate into daily life, but that didn't stop Nick Cannon and Dennis Rodman from trying. Cannon is the latest member of the close-cropped, leopard-print hair club. His initiation was two days ago. He joins founding member Dennis Rodman, who was known for sporting (get it?) the style in 1998.

Cannon revealed in his Instagram caption that the process took five hours, but, as we all know, looking swaggy takes time. His hair is longer and curlier than Dennis', so the spots aren't as obvious—they could just as easily pass for polka dots. Dennis' spots, on the other hand, are starkly contrasted against his short bleached hair.

Emma Watson

It's no secret that Emma Watson's red carpet style is on point—I mean, she wore pants under a backless gown to the 2014 Golden Globes. She's not playing around. What was not so obvious until recently, however, is her equally envious ability to accessorize. We noted her jewelry collection at this year's Oscars, but she's also started accessorizing her hair and, TBH, each style she tries pairs perfectly with her outfit and doesn't overwhelm at all. We bow down.

At last night's London premiere of Noah, Emma wore silver and gold jewels on the right side of her updo. They appeared to be casually thrown in, but they transform a relatively simple look to a sleek one. Hi, perfect prom 2014 hair inspiration.

Lauren Conrad

SO PRETTY.

Unless this is some kind of April Fools joke, Lauren Conrad has taken a purple plunge. I hope it's not a joke—her hair, as always, looks perfect. Like, I want to go to the drugstore right now, buy some purple dye, and color my hair in the bathroom. Sorry the sinks are stained purple, coworkers, but this was a hair emergency—bye boring blonde, hello pretty purple!

It was only a few weeks ago that we were complimenting LC's short, springy 'do and now she's taken the look to an entirely different level. This pastel purple isn't the first unnatural color Lauren has tried out—she's gone both pink and multi-color before—but it's the first time she's committed to having the shade for more than a weekend. In a blog post, she explains that while she normally uses temporary dye, this time she went with semi-permanent, which lasts for six to eight weeks. A bold move, but one I respect (and envy), since it looks so good.

One Direction

Buy our perfume!

OK, so as you probably know, One Direction is releasing a new fragrance in a matter of weeks (May 5th in the United States). That Moment is a follow-up to their first fragrance, Our Moment, and for some reason 100% unbeknownst to me, they made a five-minute film to promote the new scent. Like, obviously I'll watch anything 1D-related (I have to, it's my JOB, so...), but this is different than anything I've ever seen. Sure, the Our Moment ad was full of LOLs, but this is just...odd. We need to discuss. I don't know what's going on.

Lady Gaga

In case you missed the news, Roseland Ballroom in New York City is closing, and the venue landed a pretty big name to shut things down. This local singer named Lady Gaga—you might not have heard of her—is doing the seven final shows at Roseland and her wardrobe, at least two shows in, has been heavy on the roses.

She's giving us updated classic Gaga looks, like a new Botticelli-inspired bikini, which she paired with a rose headband. Roses at Roseland, ya dig?

Gaga kicked off the first show on her birthday, and the outfit she arrived in, naturally, was essentially her birthday suit plus some strategically placed roses. Perhaps in an act of modesty (JK!), Gaga covered her face with a sheer, rose-embellished mask.

That's all for this season of Teen Wolf? I don't mean all as in, like, "I needed more" kind of way (I really didn't), but more in a "What am I going to watch on Mondays?" way. Last night's episode was so full of ~action~ that it barely had time to acknowledge Allison's death. That's a lot of action!

The plot, of course, centered around the quest to destroy Evil Stiles and the crew of Oni he was now leading. I'll be the first to admit that I'm all for 2 x's the Stiles on my screen, but even I was like, "OK, Evil Stiles, you have got to go. BAI." Aside from all the killing and maiming, Stiles and Evil Stiles are actually quite similar—especially sartorially! Did Evil Stiles raid normal, dreamboat Stiles' closet? Let's take a look!

Teen Wolf

Will the real Stiles please stand up?Photo: MTV

If you haven't seen the episode, would you be able to tell which one was evil? Evil Stiles (on the right) is dressed in an outfit you could totally imagine regular ol' Stiles dressed in, right? Just, like, darker. Hooded T-shirts, corduroy jackets, and layers are wardrobe staples. How did his evil twin get a hold of those clothes? Sheriff Stilinski, you should probably be a little more alert if a random boy is rooting around your son's closet. You're a cop—just sayin'. I know Void Stiles is responsible for mass destruction and chaos in Beacon Hills, but he looks like the Stiles we know and love, so it's kinda hard to hate him, TBH. (JK, I DO!)

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
